Music in the Morning

Every now and then I take Jason to work in the morning so I can have the car (or just to get out of the house). Invariably, I hear a song on the radio that I haven't heard in years or maybe a song that I didn't like so much, but now it resonates.

Today was a situation of the latter. I re-heard "Hand in My Pocket" by Alanis Morissette after I dropped off Jason and it sounded good. I don't really care for Alanis but the song felt good. I turned it up and it made me smile. So here it is for your listening/viewing  pleasure. (I wish there was less Alanis and her giant mouth in this video, but oh well.)



I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five

I feel drunk but I'm sober
I'm young and I'm underpaid
I'm tired but I'm working, yeah
I care but I'm worthless
I'm here but I'm really gone
I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be quite alright
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is flicking a cigarette

What it all comes down to
Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign

I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise
I'm shy but I'm friendly baby
I'm sad but I'm laughing
I'm brave but I'm chicken shit
I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano

What it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything's just fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxicab...
